Learn How to Run Effortlessly


Running is more than putting one foot in front of the other, it’s a skill. Just like any other sport you can improve your skills by exercising. It takes effort and work, but we will show you how and help you to become lighter and smoother in your movements.

After a while running will become less painful and you will find higher pleasure in your runs. Inevitably, with better technique and more running pleasure will come higher motivation, and from there it’s just a small step to increased performance.

Send us an e-mail if you want to find out more about our coaching program.

Usually we meet new runners over a coffee. This allows you to ask any question you might have, and allows us to get a better idea of your specific sports profile and needs. After the meeting you’ll have a clear idea whether our coaching is what you’re looking for.

The meeting can be at my office (Sanohub, Rue Saint-Denis 120, Forest), or closer to you if you prefer.

Program & Who

Just follow the program

Focusing on running technique is what makes this coaching program different. Your coach will regularly run with you to work on the many different aspects like posture, arms, landing and cadence. You will get direct feedback and grow week after week.

Through an online platform you will receive a weekly training program, in which we will review the main training principles to take into account. On top of that, we will share helpful insights about nutrition, and we can also discuss and develop your mental strength.

 

Who is the program for?

You’re a beginner and you want to take up running, but you don’t know how? Or maybe you’re trying, but you find it hard and you can’t imagine yourself comfortably strolling kilometer after kilometer? We can start together from scratch, we’ll teach you all the basics, and soon you will be running like you never imagined you would.

You’re an experienced runner but never worked on running technique? Instead of going through the whole process of experimenting, your learning curve will be much steeper when we work on it together, gradually making your style more efficient. After all, running is about being as fast as possible with the lowest energy investment.

Gitte

“I was a regular runner when I started to train with Bastien. My goal was to run 10 km effortlessly. Within four months of regular training I was there – once I ran 14 km and it didn’t feel hard at all, in fact, I could have run even longer. With Bastien’s support I worked on my technique, and step by step upped my performance. At no point did it feel hard. I would have thought I would make progress faster, but I did make progress without noticing it really.

So, overall I am super happy with the training. Bastien gives constant, always positive feedback, which has worked to strengthen me mentally as well. And he has a great sense of humour. Thumbs up!”

Ed.: In 2021 Gitte set a personal best on 5K (26’52) and a few weeks another PB on 10K (53’43).

“Bastien’s coaching style is methodical, he’s punctual in his feedback and adapts quickly to your schedule and performance, when needed. He’s challenging but relaxed, he’s going to push you, while always listening to your personal needs.

My running performance has strongly improved under his supervision and I learnt a lot about running and myself. Big plus he’s a cool and interesting person to have chat with! ”

Ed.: In 2021 Luca set personal bests on 5K (20’01), 10K (41’26) and ran totally unsupported the Green (Mountain) Marathon of Zurich in 4h19’07.

Robin

“Depuis 2 ans je m’entraine avec Bastien, c’est un coach passionné par son job. Il m’a appris les techniques de base de la course à pied et surtout l’importance de la cadence, ce qui m’a permis d’améliorer l’efficacité de ma foulée et de mon rythme de course (à un niveau de dépense d’énergie constant!). Il a très vite compris mes attentes et a mis en place un plan d’entrainement adapté avec des objectifs intermédiaires afin de maintenir un bon niveau de motivation.

Impressionnant également de voir le temps qu’il prend à suivre les résultats de mes sessions d’entrainements afin d’adapter le plan, aussi à me rebooster si nécessaire via un message Whatsapp d’avant-course.

Je cours mon deuxième marathon dimanche prochain et je peux affirmer que je suis prêt à tous les niveaux : course, alimentation et sommeil. Il ne me reste plus qu’à atteindre l’objectif que je me suis fixé, en toute sérénité ! Thanks! ”

Ed.: In 2019 Robin has improved his PB on 10K, 20K and Marathon

“De begeleiding is uiterst persoonlijk en alle mogelijke gegevens worden grondig geanalyseerd en besproken. Het trainingsschema werd perfect opgebouwd en aangepast aan mijn individuele situatie.

Wie zich aan het schema houdt, zal zeker klaar zijn voor de wedstrijd.

Voor herhaling vatbaar!”

Hugues

“Nous avons commencé à reprendre les bases de la course à pied avec différents exercices pour atteindre un bon niveau technique. En parallèle, Bastien a programmé des entraînements de vélo et de natation en fonction de mes contraintes professionnelles et familiales. Les types de session varient et je ne m’ennuie pas ! Grâce à un site internet dédié et à des discussions Whatsapp, les échanges sont faciles et flexibles.

L’équipe 3coach est un vrai plus pour le triathlon, et Bastien n’hésite pas à me mettre en contact avec les autres coaches ou triathlètes.

Cet été, j’ai couru le triathlon distance olympique d’Hambourg en un temps auquel je n’aurais pas cru quand j’ai commencé. Bastien ne me lâche pas pour autant et nous consacrons l’été à préparer le triathlon distance olympique de Barcelone. Au passage, j’ai perdu 10 kg !”

Ed.: In the meanwhile Hugues has further improved his PB with 4 minutes during the the Olympic triathlon of Barcelona in September.

David

“With Bastien’s help, running has become more varied, more fun and more successful! After my first marathon I realised that I needed help to get faster, stronger and stay injury-free. Bastien listened to my needs, analysed my technique and form, and set up a tailored programme that worked on weaknesses such as endurance, posture and strength. The added ingredient of infectious enthusiasm helped too…

Now, instead of run after run at the same pace and on the same streets, I am running forest trails, doing barefoot runs, and mixing things up with tempos and fart leks. Bastien taught me to run ‘properly’, gave regular feedback on runs and his advice in preparation for races was invaluable – helping to prepare the mind as well as body.

Two more marathons and two PBs later, thanks to Bastien I’m getting so much more out of running – and learning that it really is a team sport!”

Geoffroy

“Avant de travailler avec Bastien j’avais déjà couru des 20km et des trails, mais sans aucune méthode d’entrainement. De manière simple et décontractée, il m’a apporté une structure et de nombreux conseils techniques. Il a très vite identifié mes forces et faiblesses avec un test à l’effort. Ensuite, Bastien m’a permis de progresser grâce à un programme personnalisé qui tenait compte de mes impératifs (boulot, vie familiale,…). Le plus, c’est cette sensation d’être encadré dans son entrainement. Je recommande Bastien sans aucune hésitation.”

Eva Annamaria

“Preparing for my first 10 miles competition on my own, I felt like I had just hit a wall, so I contacted Bastien. He was really positive and enthusiastic right from the start, and his enthusiasm was contagious. He began teaching me proper running technique, which took me a few sessions to really get down. But with Bastien’s help and encouragement I persisted and stuck to the training plan. On racing day I felt great excitement, but also a sense of calm, because I knew exactly my strategy and I was going to follow it to the finish line. And so I did! I finished the race in and I cannot even describe the feeling when I reached the end – it was simply amazing. Not only did i succeed, but I feel like I’m just getting started…”

Lennard

“I had been running for years, mostly semi-marathons and 20-30 km trails, when I decided that this was the year I was going to do the Bouillonnante, a 50 km 2500mD+ slog in the Ardennes. Soon I realised that just putting in extra kms wouldn’t do and that I needed a step change in the way I approached my preparation. Bastien quickly grasped what needed to be done and provided me with a clear approach, reassurance and most of all a contagious motivation! Needless to say I completed the Bouillonante successfully. I highly recommend Bastien for his skills but also because he is a very pleasant person to work with.”

Mette

“When I had my first meeting with Bastien I was sceptical – who is this guy who loves taking the stairs to 10th floor and how will he ever be able to teach me to run? I literally could not run 50 meters to catch the bus, but with Bastien’s patience and gentle guiding I can now say that I actually feel a lot better in general and enjoy going out for a run. I think his professionalism and the fact that you can see that he enjoys his work is what makes him a good coach.”

“Dankzij Bastien heb ik mezelf heruitgevonden als loper. Onder zijn impuls ben ik gaan sleutelen aan mijn pasfrequentie en looptechniek. Het resultaat is een meer economische en efficiëntere loopstijl. Daardoor kan ik die zware loopschoenen links laten liggen en kiezen voor lichte, snelle schoenen. Heerlijk. Behalve op vlak van lopen heeft Bastien me ook enkele waardevolle voedingstips meegegeven.”

“Dankzij Bastien ben ik gecontroleerd beginnen lopen. Bastien zorgt voor een goede persoonlijke follow-up met tips en tricks die echt nuttig zijn en variëren van persoon tot persoon.”
